Tile Trends We’re Loving for 2020

All you home renovators out there, this is the post I know you have all been dying to read. It’s finally here, my hot picks for this year’s tile trends, and who doesn’t love tiles! Tiles are the answer to everything. Need a durable flooring solution; choose tiles. Need a feature splashback, choose tiles. Need a feature wall, choose tiles! Moreover, compared to other materials, they are very affordable!

If you love tiles as much as I do (and that’s a lot), then continue reading as I share with you what’s hot in tiles right now. If you’re looking to design a kitchen, a bathroom, or tile an entire house, you will want to choose from the trends and tile below.

Black and White

Feature - Susan Black

If you’re a sucker for the monochromatic colour palette, you’ll be jumping for joy to hear that black and white tiles are in because they are the perfect complement to a monochromatic design. The best thing about this trend is that it lends to so many design styles and colour palettes, not just monochromatic, and there are a wide variety of tiles to choose from – marble, terrazzo, mosaics etc. The result can be as minimalistic or creative as you like.

If you’re opposed to black and white, get a little creative by following one of this year’s colour trends. Trending in 2020 are rustic colours with warm tones and a relaxed feel – think pinks, oranges, blues, greens and even mustard; organic and nature-inspired shades are leading the way.

Also referred to as Neon Pastels, these colour tones offer a revitalising break from the grey and muted colour palettes that we have seen over the last few years. Moreover, they look great used collectively or can be used individually and paired with whites, greys or marble to create an elegant look.


Stone Porcelain Statuario

Marble is one material that will always be in-trend, but this year, homeowners are going nuts for marble tiles. And why wouldn’t they; marble tiles are the epitome of luxe design – they are elegant, modern, tactile and now available in a smorgasbord of designs, shapes and sizes. We’re finding our large marble tiles are a hot choice for flooring throughout a home, while our small marble mosaics are very popular in bathrooms and kitchens.

If you can’t afford marble, don’t fret. Thanks to today’s amazing digital technologies, you can get some fantastic marble-look tiles that look just a good as the real thing and cost only a fraction of the price.

Cameron Grey Feature Wall Tile

I admit I am a sucker for patterns and in 2020, patterned tiles are taking it back to the ’30s and ’70s with some smashing Art Deco and retro designs. Taking the allure of the original eras but adding a modern spin, New Deco has emerged. The decorative patterned tiles are ideal for a feature wall, bathroom or kitchen splashback, and will add a fresh and spirited touch to any space.

Textured Finishes

One sure way to add depth, interest, and character to any space is by adding textures. And, now, you can add texture through your tile choice. The latest tile designs come in a magnitude of options, including those with textured finishes. Embossed, relief, natural stone, and 3D are just some of the textures you can find from tiles today.

Textured tiles are also a perfect kitchen splashback tile.

Terazzo Charcoal

Terazzo Charcoal, $45 per square metre

Terrazzo was one of the top tile trends of 2019, and it’s sticking around in 2020 as well. If you don’t know what Terrazzo is, it is merely a composite material produced from chips of glass, granite, marble, stone,  etc., set in concrete. The result is quite stunning, and depending on the chips, the range of colours and designs can be very diverse.

There is really very little tiles cannot do or cannot be used for. They are so flexible in application and affordable that it is no wonder they are one of the most popular building materials of all time.

If you’re looking for design inspiration for your new kitchen, bathroom or flooring, then this year’s tile trends will surely provide the ‘inspo’ you seek.
